BASEBALL IS BACK! The Royals’ season started last week Monday, and unfortunately, they haven’t been off to the greatest start, but the season is long, and I’m #raisedroyal! I wore my Royals scarf last Monday to celebrate opening day!
After over a week of rainy weather and crappy allergy / sinus problems, the sun finally peeked out Thursday of last week, and it’s been warm and windy and feeling like spring. Everything is blooming and greening and flowering like crazy because of all the rain we’ve had. And this is the worst view ever from where I work… 😛
Friday, Chris and I went to the Rock the Parkway expo to grab our race packets, then came home and made spaghetti. Jasper was quite interested in my food, as always.
Saturday morning, Chris and I did the Rock the Parkway Half Marathon! It was my 13th half, and Chris’ 2nd. I’ll have a race recap up later this week; I’m still working on sorting through my thoughts. It wasn’t a good race for me, and I’m still processing things.
After the race, we got cleaned up and met up with Chris’ best friends, who came to town from the central Missouri area. We walked around and shopped a bit at Legends before grabbing BBQ and eating at the park. We weren’t thrilled to walk around all afternoon after a half marathon, but I think it helped loosen up our legs a bit. I know my legs felt better, but still very tired, after all the walking.
Sunday morning, we drove to Topeka to meet Mom and Dad, and meet little Skye puppy, before going to a family lunch at my aunt and uncle’s house. My cousins were in town visiting, and my grandparents drove down too, so it was really nice to see everyone. Kristen and Thayne were the only ones missing.
Skye is so adorable. I wanted to take her home! She’s a little firecracker, for sure.
It was really great to see everyone!
This week, I’m going to tackle a few “to do” items on our wedding checklist, and get back on the roads once I process a bit of running stuff that I have going on mentally.
Congrats to everyone who ran Rock the Parkway, or any other race over the weekend, especially to my little sister and her team who ran the Ragnar So Cal relay and kicked butt!! Have a great week, friends!
